The Industrial Energy Efficiency Accelerator (IEEA) programme funds industrial scale demonstrations of novel technologies with the potential to reduce energy consumption, maximise resource efficiency and cut carbon emissions in industry. The main objective of the programme is to support partnerships between technology developers and industrial companies, to facilitate innovation and increase the number of energy efficient technologies available to industry.
The programme is open to projects from all UK industry sectors that can demonstrate either a novel technology (targeting Technology Readiness Level 5-8), or the use of an established technology in a novel way.
Projects may be applicable to any industrial sector and must include an industrial partner that will demonstrate the technology at their UK site, and (usually) a technology developer that has developed the new technology. Other project partners, such as research organisations, universities, specialist technology suppliers, and consultants, may be included in a consortium.
Focus of fund/fund aims:
Funding of £150,000 - £1million is available for industrial scale demonstrations of novel technologies with the potential to reduce energy consumption, maximise resource efficiency and cut carbon emissions in UK industry.
